Ranking Jacksonville Jaguars potential free agents in 2023
Ranking Jacksonville Jaguars potential FAs: Middle of the pack
12. Adam Gotsis, defensive lineman
Former second-round pick Adam Gotsis has been a valuable pickup since signing with the Jags in 2020. The Australia native made 14 starts in his first season with the Black and Teal but has been more productive as a part of the defensive line rotation over the last two seasons.
In 47 games with the Jags, Gotsis has posted five sacks, 83 total tackles, and 13 tackles for a loss. The team’s brass could try to re-sign him but he could leave if he gets a better offer from another club.
11. C.J. Beathard, quarterback
Quarterback is the most important position in football and the backup quarterback is the second most important. Re-signing C.J. Beathard would be cheap and that’s what the Jaguars could do this offseason.
There might be better alternatives in free agency but they will also be more expensive, so bringing back Beathard and drafting a quarterback prospect to develop might be the best course of action for Jacksonville in 2023.
10. Dan Arnold, tight end
The Jaguars traded for Dan Arnold following their Week 3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in 2021. He quickly became one of Trevor Lawrence’s favorite targets but a knee injury cut his season short.
Arnold seemed poised to have a featured role in Doug Pederson’s tight-end friendly offense but instead saw his playing time diminish. The tight end made the most of his snaps in 2022, hauling in nine passes on 13 targets for 135. However, it doesn’t look like he’s part of the team’s long-term plans.
